You're right. We should do what your boy Bill Bennett said and just abort all black babies. That'll get the crime rate down.

Constructive Feedback (Guest) ·
The fact that Bennet and his wive are virulent anti-Abortion activists is not enough to have you to admit how unlikely such an event is likely to happen under him as you said little about the ABORTION DOCTOR in Arkansas who offered to abort Black babies for free. The Black people coming out of New Orleans had enough to deal with - why deal with a kid? Too much of a hasle. Right?

The scuttlebutt is that Larry, like his compadre Armstrong Williams, is as queer as a $3 bill ... time will tell. Far too often the most vicious and truth-distorting GOP shills are closeted homosexuals. Perhaps it is the stress of having to live a lie that makes them that way. In any event, the "echo" posts can be a good thing, huh'?! Interesting, thought-provoking information can be lost in the shuffle of a thread.

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

NO! It is exactly that unbalance relationship that leads to a stalled, halted or forsaken "dialogue." Arguably, people could say Dr. King and Pres. Lydon Johnson started a "dialogue." For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".

There is no watering over her analogy, there is nothing she can say or for that matter you can say that can juxtapose rich folk and bureaucracy with the way Plantations were run.

Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.
